Death: The Final Frontier

My latest blog post…

Crackin' The WIP

I like this picture. Both for how Keith M. used it and for my subject ‘Death’.

I started this post a couple of weeks ago and the intent was to talk about dealing with death in your writing. I had written a couple of clever paragraphs, but I somehow managed to lose them.

Death. A dark subject and not a subject that’s easy to talk about. Why do I need to talk about it here? My WiP’s main character (MC) is an Army veteran who served in Afghanistan.

He finds a dog that helps him. Or, the dog finds him.

So, my MC is fighting grief, PTSD, and life.
